    Serena Williams’s Former L.A. Estate Can Be Yours for $13.5 Million

    A little more than five years after Serena Williams finally managed to offload her longtime home in the Los Angeles enclave of Bel Air for almost $4 million off the original $12 million ask, the retired tennis superstar’s onetime estate has popped up for sale yet again, this time with a $13.5 million price tag. The listing is held by Louis DeLaura and Ernie Stone of Sotheby’s International Realty.

    Famously owned by the 23-time Grand Slam singles winner for 13 years from 2006 to spring 2019, when the place traded hands for $8.1 million, records show the property in the Stone Canyon neighborhood was last sold to L.A.-based interior designer Rodrigo Vargas and his partner Frederick Storey for a speck under $8 million in late 2020.

    Originally built in the 1930s but remodeled and expanded in the years since, the Colonial Mediterranean structure is tucked away on a fenced and gated double parcel spanning nearly 3 acres, just minutes from Hotel Bel-Air. Inside, six bedrooms and seven baths are filtered across a little more than 6,100 square feet of two-level living space that is adorned throughout with walls of glass spilling out to grounds laced with mature trees and water features.

    Upon entering the double front doors via a lengthy vine-covered colonnade connected to a motorcourt and three-car garage, an entry foyer flows to a semi-circular living room boasting marble floors and built-in bookshelves. Other highlights include a wood-paneled study with a bar and a formal dining room topped by a snazzy chandelier, while the all-white kitchen is decked out with limestone countertops, high-end stainless appliances, and an accompanying breakfast nook lined with windows.

    Secluded upstairs is the elegant primary suite, which features a Juliet balcony, a walk-in closet, and a luxe bath equipped with dual vanities, a clawfoot soaking tub, and a steam shower. And though there’s surprisingly no tennis court outside, the private backyard does host a pool and spa surrounded by a flagstone terrace, as well as an open-air cabana warmed by a fireplace and a brick-clad terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining.

    Williams, who married Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian in 2017, went on to buy a $6.7 million home in a gated Beverly Hills pocket and a sleek, 7,000-square-foot waterfront home in Jupiter, Fla., that was featured in Architectural Digest in 2021.

    Meghan Trainor’s Spare L.A. Home Hits the Market for $12 Million

    Now that Meghan Trainor has purchased DJ Zedd’s rockstar-worthy mansion in the Los Angeles enclave of Encino for just over $17.1 million, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter’s other San Fernando Valley home has unsurprisingly popped up for sale, listed with Justin P. Huchel of Carolwood Estates.

    Trainor, known for smash pop music hits like Lips Are Moving and All About That Bass, is asking nearly $12 million for the glitzy digs, which she and her husband, Spy Kids actor Daryl Sabara, paid rapper TMG Fresh $6.6 million for around three-and-a-half years ago, back in late 2020.

    Originally built in 1998 but fully renovated from top to bottom during Trainor’s tenure, the white stucco structure is sequestered behind tall gates and hedges and features six bedrooms and eight baths in a little more than 14,100 square feet of multi-level living space. Also on the premises is a two-story detached guesthouse, which sports a gym on the bottom floor, plus a bedroom, a bath, a kitchen, and a living room up top.

    Among the main-level highlights is an entry foyer boasting a double staircase, which flows to a pair of formal living rooms. A fireside family room connects to a gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with a duo of islands, top-tier stainless appliances, and an accompanying dining area that has sliding glass doors spilling out to the backyard; elsewhere is an office space and a guest bedroom with its own bath.

A lower-level recording studio with its own entrance is also decked out with a kitchenette and a bath, while a top-floor bonus space is currently being used as a playroom.

    As for the park-like grounds, they span just over an acre and host a new swimming pool with a spa, a waterslide, and a waterfall, as well as a firepit, an al fresco dining area, a sports court, a mini-putting green, and an elaborate children’s play space. Also on the premises are an expansive motorcourt and a carport that can accommodate up to 10 vehicles.

    In addition to the just-purchased and for-sale homes in Encino, the couple recently splashed out $3.1 million for a newly built modern farmhouse-style home also in the area. More

    Actor Tony Hale’s Cozy L.A. Retreat Is Up for Grabs at $2.6 Million

    After seven-plus years of ownership, Emmy-winning actor Tony Hale has decided to part ways with his “cozy, sit-by-the-fire refuge” in Los Angeles. Records show the Arrested Development and Veep star has stuck a nearly $2.7 million price tag on the charming Nantucket-inspired ranch house, which is tucked away in the foothills of Studio City.

    Though that’s around a million more than he and his makeup artist wife Martel paid for the property back in 2016, the couple did completely remodel the premises during their tenure in collaboration with Martin & Brockett designer Jason Martin. Described in marketing materials as a “picture perfect traditional hideaway” and featured in Architectural Digest, the 1930s house offers two bedrooms, two full baths, and a powder room in a little more than 2,400 square feet of modern yet inviting living space adorned throughout with a mix of hardwood and slate stone floors, bay windows, and French doors leading outside. There’s also a separate one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse and a detached two-car garage.

    The window-lined living room is centered around a wood-burning fireplace.

    Gates and high hedges front the creamy stucco and brick-accented structure, which is perched atop almost one-third acres of land overlooking picturesque city lights and mountain views. Inside, an entry foyer flows to a spacious light-filled living room highlighted by a wood-burning fireplace, a formal dining room, and a kitchen outfitted with marble countertops, custom cabinetry, a subway-tile backsplash, a farmhouse sink, a six-burner Wolf range, and an accompanying breakfast nook sporting a built-in window seat.

    The duo of en-suite bedrooms includes a primary retreat boasting a covered deck warmed by a fireplace, as well as a walk-in closet and a spa-like bath equipped with dual vanities, a soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. Elsewhere are a hidden bar, a wine cellar, and a laundry room, plus secluded turf-clad grounds laced with fruit trees and hosting numerous al fresco lounging and entertaining spots enhanced by a bar and barbecue setup and a firepit. Adding to the home’s allure are an alarm system, solar panels, and even a tree swing.

    A tree swing can be found just outside the primary bedroom’s private deck.

    Josh Bustos

    A native of New York, the 53-year-old actor and comedian first gained notoriety as Buster Bluth in the Fox series Arrested Development and went on to win two “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” Emmys for his portrayal as personal aide Gary Walsh on HBO’s Veep. Most recently, Hale can be heard as the voice of Fear in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out 2, a sequel to the Oscar-winning 2015 animated film.

    Now that Gwyneth Paltrow’s custom-built mansion in Santa Barbara’s posh seaside Montecito enclave has finally come to fruition, the Oscar-winning actress and lifestyle guru has decided to lighten her SoCal real estate portfolio, having stuck a nearly $30 million price tag on her longtime Los Angeles home in the Lower Mandeville area of Brentwood.
    Though that’s a whopping $20 million or so more than the Goop CEO and her ex-husband Chris Martin of Coldplay fame paid for the 1950s spread almost 12 years ago, back in spring 2012, Paltrow did extensively renovate the premises during her ownership. According to The Wall Street Journal, she added a one-bedroom guesthouse boasting a climate-controlled wine cellar, an office, a gym, a game room, and a movie theater. There’s also an apartment resting atop the garage.
    Nestled on a parcel spanning roughly two-thirds of an acre and described in marketing materials as “Southern Transitional,” the Windsor Smith-designed house features eight bedrooms and 11 baths in a little more than 12,700 square feet of single-level living space boasting reclaimed wood floors and patterned stonework throughout.
    Highlights include a voluminous living room with French doors leading out to a backyard hosting a plunge pool, as well as a bookshelf-lined family room and a gourmet kitchen outfitted with an eat-in island, a breakfast nook, double cooktops and ranges, plus a wood-burning oven. Elsewhere is a secluded primary wing hosting dual baths.

    Paltrow has shared the digs with her husband, writer-producer Brad Falchuk, since they were wed in 2018. The couple, who have four grown children between them, now plan to split their time between their homes in Montecito and Amagansett, N.Y., along with a potential new dwelling in L.A.
    The residence, which sits right next door to a modern farmhouse-style spread that was reportedly just purchased by rapper and songwriter Kendrick Lamar for more than $40 million, is listed by Lea Porter of The Beverly Hills Estates.

    NFL Quarterback Tyrod Taylor Tosses His Georgia Home on the Market for $5 Million
    Tyrod Taylor has officially hoisted his swanky estate in the Roswell suburb of Atlanta up for sale. The New York Jets quarterback acquired the residence for $2.4 million a little over five years ago, back in spring 2019, and now it’s returned to the market with a $5 million ask.
    Originally built in 2016 and fully remodeled during Taylor’s tenure in collaboration with Infinite Home and The Chalice by Ashleigh Chalice, the brick-clad structure features seven bedrooms and 10 baths in a little more than 15,000 square feet of multi-level living space boasting an elevator, six fireplaces, a fully loaded guest apartment, a billiards room, a humidor, and a wellness center with a gym and sauna. Other posh amenities can be found amid the gated and landscaped grounds, which span just over 2 acres and host a fire-pit, a sports court, and a waterfall-enhanced pool and spa.

    Additional standout features include a double-height entry foyer displaying a glass and steel-framed wine cellar, a wood-paneled library/office, and a family room holding a fireplace flanked by built-in shelving and French doors spilling out to a lanai with a barbecue station. An adjacent gourmet kitchen is furnished with custom cabinetry, an eat-in island, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, and a breakfast nook, while a sumptuous primary retreat flaunts a fireplace, a mini-bar, dual showroom-style closets, and a luxe bath outfitted spotlighted by a fireside soaking tub and a steam shower.
    Originally selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, the 34-year-old Virginia native recently rejoined the Jets in March. He also launched the luxury streetwear brand DIALLO alongside Dex Robinson.

    An NBA Player’s Hidden Hills Mansion Finally Sells to Milla Jovovich
    Ben Simmons has officially offloaded his Hidden Hills residence via auction for a smidge over $12 million, or a substantial $5.4 million less than the NBA All-Star paid for the place three years ago, back in spring 2021.
    Records reveal the buyer is Resident Evil actress Milla Jovovich and her English director/producer husband Paul W.S. Anderson. After languishing on the market since May 2022, initially with a hefty $23 million ask, the listing price was reduced several times before the house finally sold to the couple at a substantial discount.
    Resting at the end of a secluded cul-de-sac, amid a gated and olive tree-laced parcel spanning 1.5-acres, the home was built in 2021 by Nobel LA in the trendy modern farmhouse style, complete with a striking exterior hewn from vertical reclaimed wood siding and charcoal-hued brick. A total of seven bedrooms and eight baths are sprawled across 12,000 square feet of living space, with amenities including two pools, a guesthouse, a gym, and a three-car garage.
    A dramatic two-way fireplace serves as the focal point of a spacious great room, which holds a living area with automated Fleetwood glass doors opening to a patio and a dining room with a duo of custom metal chandeliers that reportedly cost more than $100,000 each, plus a climate-controlled wine wall and tucked-away catering kitchen with commercial-grade appliances.

    Jovovich and Anderson still own two L.A. properties: a contemporary Hollywood Hills mansion they paid $10.2 million for in 2022 and a house in the Mount Olympus neighborhood that was reportedly once occupied by Jovovich’s mother Galina.

    For the past two years, music superstar Usher has owned a Hollywood Hills estate he purchased for $3.4 million from London-born model/actress sisters Cara and Poppy Delevingne. Now the OMG and Yeah! crooner has flipped the midcentury residence back up for sale with a $400,000 jump in price, asking $3.8 million.
    Originally built in the mid-1950s and occupied for more than a decade before the Delevingne sister’s tenure by Oscar-winning actor and musician Jared Leto, the premises have been remodeled through the years and include five bedrooms and four baths in roughly 4,000 square feet of two-level living space. There’s also a studio and a detached two-car garage.
    Hidden away on a street-to-street parcel spanning over a quarter of an acre, the white stucco structure greets with walls and gates.

Now the High School Musical alum and her composer husband Christopher French are ready to hand over the keys to the home, asking a speck under $6.8 million.
    Originally built in the late 1940s, the place was extensively redecorated by Tisdale herself and featured in Architectural Digest. Sited behind double gates, the private dwelling has four bedrooms and six baths in a little more than 4,100 square feet modern living space boasting large walls of glass throughout. There’s also a separate two-story guesthouse with an additional bedroom suite, a kitchenette, and a play/media room, plus garden-laced grounds hosting a kidney-shaped pool and a lounge area warmed by a fire-pit.

    A Tech Magnate Is Asking $12.5 Million for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Former L.A. Home

    Almost three months after Jim Demetriades hoisted his extravagant Los Angeles compound known as Villa Theos on the market with an impressive $85 million price tag, the veteran tech entrepreneur has now put another smaller house he owns right next door up for sale, asking a smidge under $12.5 million.

    The founder and CEO of Kairos Ventures has owned his larger property in the Beverly Hills Post Office area since 2000. That’s when he and his then-new wife Nancy paid $8.4 million for a single house and then began piecing together a gated collection of red brick and stucco structures that cost tens of millions of dollars to assemble and feature a total of 13 bedrooms and 16 baths in 28,000 square feet, all of it resting on two parcels of land spanning over 2 acres.

    The NBA legend’s former home has posh amenities like an indoor sports court.

    Paul Barnaby

    Along the way, in 2005, the native of Greece doled out around $6.5 million more for the house next door, a contemporary structure originally built in 1956 and previously owned by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Records show the legendary Lakers basketball center acquired the place for roughly $2.2 million in the early 1990s and subsequently added an indoor sports court and a gym with a spa and a steam room. The six-time NBA MVP resided there until summer 2001, at which time he sold the place for $500,000 more than he originally paid.

    Sited atop a promontory in the desirable Beverly Crest neighborhood, on almost an acre of land overlooking sweeping city lights and ocean vistas, the four-bedroom, five-bath home is hidden away behind a lengthy gated driveway. Inside, a little more than 6,300 square feet of renovated living space boasts soaring ceilings and vast walls of glass providing seamless indoor/outdoor environs.

    A glass-lined living room has French doors opening to the backyard pool area.

    Paul Barnaby

    Highlights include a sunken living room accented by a wet bar and a particularly eye-catching fireplace, as well as an office and a library loft. A formal dining room rests beneath a striking chandelier, while the updated kitchen is outfitted with an eat-in island, top-tier stainless appliances, and an accompanying breakfast nook that opens to a courtyard warmed by a firepit.

    Elsewhere in the house is a primary suite that comes complete with a seating area, a private patio, and a luxe bath equipped with a spa tub and a glass-encased shower; and outdoors, the grounds host a swimming pool and numerous spots ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining. There’s also a motor court and a four-car garage on the premises.

    Pee-Wee Herman’s Personal Playhouse in L.A. Could Be Yours for $5 Million

    Ten months after his death at age 70, the Los Angeles estate of actor, comedian, writer, and producer Paul Reubens—best known for his childlike, red bow tie-wearing alter-ego Pee-wee Herman—is available for the first time in almost four decades, asking just under $5 million. Built in the late 1950s and boasting nearly 3,000 square feet of living space, the midcentury ranch house sits atop a promontory in the sought-after Oaks neighborhood of Los Feliz and comes complete with views of the Griffith Park Observatory and the iconic Hollywood Sign from nearly every vantage point.

    A California Institute of the Arts theater student and member of West Coast comedy troupe The Groundlings—where he originated his Pee-wee character in the 1970s—Reubens went on to become a film and TV sensation in the ’80s, starring in The Pee-wee Herman Show, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Big Top Pee-wee, and Pee-wee’s Playhouse. The recipient of a 1988 Hollywood Walk of Fame star, he’s also known for his work on Mystery Men, Blow, and Murphy Brown, the latter of which earned him an Emmy nod.

    Though his image was somewhat tarnished in later years due to a couple of arrests—one for indecent exposure and another for possessing obscene material—he subsequently appeared in a new version of The Pee-wee Herman Show at L.A.’s Club Nokia and on Broadway, as well as the movie Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.

    A glass-lined living room spills out to the backyard.

    Sam Wadieh

    As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, Reubens purchased the home for a mere $415,000 in 1985, at the height of his career, and resided there until he passed away in July 2023. Fully gated and resting at the end of a lengthy private road, the single-story structure is nestled amid a 1.4-acre parcel and features three bedrooms and an equal number of baths, plus restored yet largely original interiors boasting slate floors, wood-beam ceilings, and vintage wallpaper throughout.

    A cozy den is warmed by a massive stone fireplace.

    Sam Wadieh

    Among the highlights are a fireside living room and an adjacent dining area with sliding glass doors leading out to the backyard. A “snazzy” den has a stone fireplace and a wet bar, while a kitchen is outfitted with yellow Formica countertops and an accompanying breakfast nook. There’s also a primary suite appointed with a seating alcove, a separate dressing area, and a bath that opens to an enclosed patio Reubens built to protect his cat Koko from the surrounding wildlife, along with two guest bedrooms that share a bath.

    Reubens used to entertain friends at this al fresco barbecue area.

    Sam Wadieh

    In addition to a swimming pool and a spa, the park-like grounds are laced with more than 100 varieties of native shrubs and trees and host a barbecue area, a pergola-shaded lounging spot, a cactus garden, walking trails, and a waterfall that flows into a pond. An added bonus: a concrete patio sporting actual handprints signed by the likes of the comic’s friend and actress Debi Mazar.

    In another celebrity-related connection, Reubens’s estate is also sited near two adjacent homes owned by Emmy-winning actress and stand-up comedian Sarah Silverman—one she bought nearly four years ago for $3.5 million and another she just picked up for $2.1 million.

    The listing is held by Juliette Hohnen of Douglas Elliman.

    Rihanna Takes a Slight Loss on Matthew Perry’s Former L.A. Penthouse

    After first hitting the open market a little more than two months ago with a nearly $25 million price tag, Rihanna has officially offloaded her Los Angeles penthouse to an unnamed buyer for a pinch under $20.8 million. And while that’s still a large sum of money by any measure, that amount is around $85,000 less than the Barbadian superstar paid for the place a little over a year ago.

    The 36-year-old billionaire purchased the condo for a discounted $21 million in March 2023 from short-term owner Nick Molnar, co-founder of the tech company Afterpay, who originally wanted $28 million. Before that, the residence was owned for roughly four years by the late Friends actor Matthew Perry, who bought the sprawling unit for $20 million in 2017 and subsequently gave it an extensive makeover in collaboration with architect Scott Joyce and interior designer LM Pagano.

    Spanning the entire 40th floor of The Century building—a 42-story, Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed luxury residential tower nestled along Century City’s Avenue of the Stars—the mansion-sized flat has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms across 9,300 square feet of contemporary yet classic living space. Four massive wraparound terraces offer up picturesque views stretching from Downtown L.A. across the Santa Monica Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.

    RELATED: This $50 Million Mansion-Sized Condo Is the Most Expensive in Los Angeles

    Other highlights include a lavish soundproof movie theater and a broad entrance galley perfect for showing off artwork or collectibles. There’s also a spacious living room displaying two fireplaces, a formal dining room that seats 25, and a game room/library warmed by a fireplace, as well as a gourmet kitchen outfitted with a duo of marble-topped islands, top-tier Miele, Wolf, and Sub-Zero appliances, a wine refrigerator, and a breakfast nook. An opulent primary suite comes complete with a cozy fireside seating area, dual baths and walk-in closets, and stellar vistas via a semi-circular bank of soaring windows.

    Topping it all off are plenty of building amenities, courtesy of a hefty $8,814 monthly HOA charge, which include 24-hour concierge and security guards, four deeded parking spots in an underground garage, a wine cellar, a screening room, access to an outdoor swimming pool and gardens, a gym and fitness studio, a restaurant, conference rooms, and storage facilities.

    In addition to her recently sold condo, Rihanna still owns another smaller condo at The Century. But her current main residence remains a $14 million mansion in the mountains above Beverly Hills. Per Forbes, the We Found Love hitmaker is now the world’s richest female musician, with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion. More

    Celebrity Real Estate Roundup: Joe Jonas Buys in Brooklyn, Sarah Silverman Scoops Up the House Next Door, and More

    Barely two months after Joe Jonas’s longtime apartment in the Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan changed hands for about $5.3 million, the now-single pop star has reportedly added another New York City property to his portfolio. Per a trusted informant and public records filed in New York City, he’s just doled out $6.7 million for a residence in a historic Brooklyn neighborhood.

    Sited within the 33-story Olympia Dumbo building, which was created by Fortis Property Group in collaboration with Hill West Architects and the design firm Workstead, the corner unit rests on the 26th floor and has three bedrooms and four baths spread across 2,654 square feet of living space adorned throughout with blonde hardwood floors.

    Other highlights include an entry foyer that flows to a spacious great room offering views of the Manhattan Bridge. Double doors slide open to reveal a kitchen outfitted with sleek maple cabinetry, a stone-topped eat-in island, top-tier Gaggenau appliances, and an adjacent dining area sporting a wet bar and a Thermador wine cooler; and elsewhere is a bedroom that’s been converted into a den, along with a primary suite hosting a large walk-in closet, and an inviting bath spotlighted by dual vanities and a freestanding soaking tub.

    Jonas also will have access to plenty of amenities courtesy of $2,833 in monthly common charges, including a 24-hour doorman and concierge, a private garden lounge, a club providing everything from a two-lane bowling alley to a fitness center, a bridge level offering indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a tennis court, and a private parking spot.

    Byron Allen Lists Side-by-Side Homes in Beverly Hills

    Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images1

    Barely two years after Byron Allen simultaneously scooped up a couple of multimillion-dollar homes in one of the most desirable neighborhood pockets of Beverly Hills, the comedian-turned-media mogul is already flipping them back up for sale. The ask? A smidge under $40 million, which is a whopping $8 million more than he originally forked over for the two homes.

    Records show the CEO of Entertainment Studios paid Canadian tech titan and former eBay president Jeff Skoll a total of $32 million for the two properties in spring 2022; that was shortly after he had secured more than $80 million in financing to demolish an existing house just down the street and replace it with a 24,000-square-foot mega-mansion worth $150 million. Slated for completion this year and expected to include a bowling alley and a subterranean gym, the new spread adds to Byron’s personal property portfolio that contains luxe residences in locales such as New York, Aspen, Maui, and Malibu.

    As for the side-by-side homes now up for sale, Allen first plunked down $22.5 million for a sleek modern estate resting atop a promontory and then paid another $9.5 million for a more humble and decidedly dated Tudor abode right next door. The two separate but contiguous parcels create a 1.5-acre compound with combined living space topping 10,000 square feet.

    The pricier of the two homes was built in 1999 and features five bedrooms and seven baths in 7,500 square feet of open-plan living space offering picturesque views spanning from the downtown Los Angeles skyline to the Pacific Ocean. Notable amenities include a wet bar-equipped great room, a gourmet kitchen outfitted with top-tier appliances, and a sumptuous primary suite boasting dual closets and baths, along with a wood-paneled study, a gym, and a wine cellar. The almost 1-acre grounds also host an infinity-edge pool.

    The more modest house was built in the early 1950s and sits on over a half-acre of land fronted by a motorcourt and an attached two-car garage. Inside, there are three bedrooms and an equal number of baths in just over 3,000 square feet. Standing out is a loft space that’s accessible via a wooden ladder and a mostly paved backyard with a pool.

    LL Cool J’s Encino Mansion Hits the Market for $6 Million

    A little over six years ago, LL Cool J doled out $4.3 million for an architectural-style home in the affluent Royal Oaks enclave of Encino. Now the Grammy-winning rapper—who’s also widely known for his work as a songwriter, record producer, and actor—has decided to part ways with the place he and his wife Simone Smith have owned since spring 2018, asking a speck under $6 million.

    Described in the listing as a “masterpiece,” the 2017-built dwelling has four bedrooms and six baths in a little more than 6,000 square feet of modern living space boasting vaulted ceilings and walls of glass. Secluded by gates and high hedges, the boxy stucco structure’s main level is highlighted by a great room sporting living and dining areas that flow to a gourmet kitchen, as well as an opulent primary suite.

    Elsewhere are four additional guest bedrooms, along with a secondary living room that has floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood doors spilling out to a resort-like backyard holding a pool house, pool and spa, and built-in barbecue. There’s also an attached two-car garage on the premises.

    In addition to his for-sale house, LL Cool J also owns a New York home that he paid $1.5 million for way back in 1999.

    It’s been five years since Paul Wesley doled out $1.9 million for a secluded log cabin-style home in the remote area of Topanga Canyon. Now the actor—probably best known as Stefan Salvatore on the “Vampire Diaries”—is tossing the place back on the market, asking $3.6 million.

    Hidden away behind gates and dense foliage on three-quarters of an acre and previously listed for rent at $16,000 per month, the wood-clad structure provides sweeping views of the Santa Monica Mountains. Originally built in the early 1970s but upgraded through the years, the place boasts four bedrooms and three baths in just over 2,600 square feet of open-concept living space punctuated throughout with rustic hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, oversized windows, and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors flowing out to expansive decks ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining.

    Standout features include a sunken living room flaunting a wood-burning fireplace etched into a white-painted brick wall and a dining area that connects to an updated kitchen, which is outfitted with an eat-in island, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and a breakfast nook. There’s also an office space that doubles as a screening room, complete with surround sound, as well as a sauna-equipped gym; and outdoors, the grassy grounds are laced with mature oaks and redwoods and come complete with a cedar tub, a shower, a bocce court, and a vegetable garden.

    Sarah Silverman Buys Another Los Feliz House

    Emmy-winning actress and stand-up comedian Sarah Silverman has shelled out $2.1 million for a residential property that abuts an ultra-contemporary Los Feliz residence she bought nearly four years ago for $3.5 million.

    Built in the late 1940s and on the market for the first time in over 50 years, the post-and-beam spread was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright associate Alfred Gilman and last sold in June 1972 for $63,500. The 53-year-old Los Angeles native won the property in an apparent bidding war—paying around $563,000 over the asking price—with the purchase giving her almost half of a contiguous acre in a celeb-studded neighborhood, where nearby neighbors include Scarlett Johansson and Kate Mara.

    Described in the listing as “ready for a major restoration or a possible rebuild due to condition,” Silverman’s newly acquired home features three bedrooms and two baths in a little more than 2,300 square feet of split-level living space boasting a wealth of wood details and picture windows throughout. There’s also a detached two-car garage on the premises.

    Among the highlights are a fireside living room and a double-height dining room that opens directly to a large back patio and garden area. Secluded down a short hallway is the primary suite, while the lower level hosts a large family room with a stone fireplace, two additional bedrooms, and a full bath.
